Sausage, Broccoli, and Noodles

I got this recipe from Family Circle, which I love! Lots of easy, quick meals. This one took about 20 minutes, start to finish and everyone ate it right up. The flavors are great and it is creamy and warm!


3 packages ramen noodle soup, chicken flavor
1/4 cup fat free sour cream
1 tablespoon cornstarch
3 links Italian turkey sausage casings removed (I got the spicy kind)
3 cups broccoli flowerets

1. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. When boiling, steam the broccoli for 5 minutes. In a small bowl, stir the sour cream and cornstarch together and set aside.
2.Heat a medium skillet to med/high and bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the sausage to the skillet. Break it up with a spoon and cook for 5 minutes,or until cooked through.
3.Now to the boiling water. These noodles cook super fast so we are cooking them near the end of this meal. Cook the noodles for 2-3 minutes. Drain and set aside. * I have come to learn to leave just a little bit of cooking water in the pot with the noodles so they don't all stick together in a big lump. Not good, so leave some water :)
4.Add the broccoli, 1 cup water, and 1 1/2 teaspoons seasonings from packets to sausage in skillet. Cover and simmer over medium heat for 3 minutes.
4.Remove the lid and stir in sour cream mixture to skillet. Cook for 1 minute or until sauce has thickened.
5.Add the noodles to the skillet OR add the skillet to the now drained all the way noodles in the big pot and toss to coat with the sauce. Eat right away!!

* I served this up with tomatoes sliced in wedges sprinkled with salt and pepper and some cranberry orange muffins! Yum!! * Use the fat free Krusteaz muffin mix from the store, so good and so easy!!
